The 2008 Madison County Relay For Life will take place June 13-14 at West Jefferson High School. Anyone is invited to come out and be a part of this event.

Prior to Relay weekend, teams of families, friends, co-workers, students, churches and other groups raise money for the American Cancer Society. During Relay weekend, these folks camp out around the high school track and take turns walking laps overnight and into the next morning.

Entertainment and activities for people of all ages are planned throughout the 18-hour event. For more information, contact Relay Chairperson Jess Gross at 740-604-0005 or Gross serves as co-chair with Rachel Houser.
